Temporary Accommodation

If you arrive in London during the first week of September and don't immediately have a place to stay, IESC's Welcome Team volunteers, will guide you in locating a temporary place to stay (e.g. a reasonably priced bed and breakfast home or in a hotel for a few days). After that, our volunteers can give you tips on how to look for permanent housing.

Whether you are planning to stay in a bed and breakfast or a hotel, please call ahead to check availability and make a reservation. Identify yourself as a newly-arrived international student coming to Western - some places offer discounted rates for Western students.
